The state pays for it or it's ordered by the judge that the person found to be the father does.

:!: But it depends on the state really. Here the court orders it and pays for it in advance and if a father is found he owes it back. Same as the court and processing fees needed to sign him up for CS.

How do you think the courts are funded? The state.....anything that has to do with the courts is through the state. That's why it says The State of Blah VS Joe Blow. It's not the court of blah it's the state.

Um..that was unnecessary information considering the fact that I was agreeing with you. :? All I was saying is that not every state makes the father pay back the fees once a Child Support arrangement is met.
